Award-winning British comedian Jeff Green has become a well known face and voice on Australian TV and radio since arriving for his first Melbourne International Comedy Festival performance here in 1996. Amongst his many Australian TV credits are Spicks and Specks (ABC), Good News Week (TEN) and World Comedy Tour (The Comedy Channel) as well as numerous appearances on the Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala (Ten).

Jeff is also a regular radio contributor on Hughsey and Kate (Nova), The Conversation Hour (ABC774), 3AW, and Comedy Bites (ABC).
Since quitting the heady world of Chemical Engineering to follow a hunch that he had more to offer show business than Industrial Gases distribution Jeff has performed at theatres, events and festivals all over the world.
Now an Australian resident (he has an Australian wife, some have accused him of social climbing but he disputes that), Jeff is hugely in demand in the UK, Europe and Asia. Jeff’s stand-up comedy background is impressive: A solo West-End season and three full length UK TV comedy specials – Jeff Green Live (ITV), Jeff Green – Up West (ITV), and Jeff Green Comedy Store Special (Channel 5). Jeff also owns a caravan, which he bought on e-bay.

He has been translated into several languages including Polish, Portuguese, Finnish, Serbian, Spanish and Klingon (just checking you’re still reading).
